Bugger. It turns out that the Apple rep who told me on the phone that the new iPod Classic would work with Mac OS X 10.3.9 was lying.
I don't really want to have to buy Mac OS X 10.4. I particularly don't want to have to buy 10.4 a mere month before 10.5 comes out. It's especially annoying as I spent a while cleaning up my music library and getting album art for everything in anticipation of the Arrival of the New Toy.
So I guess I've got an expensive paperweight for the next month or two (until 10.5 comes out).
